Law Society of Singapore

The Law Society of Singapore launched a new push to encourage local legal firms to adopt new technology on Wednesday (May 15).

The SmartLaw Guild brings together practices that have adopted technology solutions such as practice management or accounting software and have been certified as ‘SmartLaw’ practices for workshops and sharing sessions.

At the launch event held at the InterContinental, Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran urged Singapore's legal fraternity to integrate technology solutions to help them stay relevant and competitive.

"A trusted ecosystem is key to the development of Singapore's digital economy, and the legal fraternity has an important role in the evolution of a regulatory architecture and the creation of legal solutions," said Mr. Iswaran.
